I can't say I blame you. Thanks.

I order from CTD all the time. The shipping isnt THAT bad--I always try to order a lot of stuff so it spreads it out a little. I get tracers from there (both .22 and 9mm) that work great.

Not to mention brass cases.

Edit: Hey! BVAC is US-made! Coooooooool. I'll take 1000 rounds of HPBT 69 grain, please.
I am a home town supporter myself and buy few things that arent made in the USA. However I bought some 22lr's and 22 magnums from BVAC that state they were built in the USA on the box. However they are actually built in the Phillipines. An oddity to say the least.

I order from CTD occasionally, but wouldn't do so for pistol defense or plinking ammo. FMJ is far cheaper to buy locally (for most folks anyway) at Walmart or the local dicount outdoors store. I order my defense ammo from Ammo2Go

The service at CTD has been fine. I've order some pistol & AR15 accessories from them, as well as various .223/5.56 rounds. Decent source for things like mags, Russian Ammo, accessories (slings, grips, etc).

BVAC 22's ARE loaded in the USA in Montana. The BRASS is made in the Phillipines by Armscor for them to SAAMI Specs.....if that's a problem for you..OK

Thanks for the imfo. Can I ask you where you got your imformation? I have had these on the cartridge collectors forum for their imput and they also thought that they were Phillipino built. I have ARMSCOR brand from the Phillipines with the exact case and bullet and near identical box design. I also have a box of HSM from Stevensville Montana with the same bullet and case. The ARMSCOR ammo I have are years older than the other brands so can only conclude that the case as well as the bullet and maybe even the box is imported.

That seems to be happening alot lately, we need to shut down the Free Trade A greement all together instead of implementing sanctions. We need to take our great country back into our own hands, we damn sure have the necessary tools to do so.
